Rent Consultation 2019/20

We Asked

We asked tenants and registered tenants' organisations for their views on our rent consultation and a proposed rent increase of 5%.

You Said

95% of respondents said they were happy with the level of consultation and information they get about the annual rent increase. 92% think the rent they pay is good value for money. 78% said that they think the proposal to increase rents by 5% is fair.

We Did

All the feedback from the consultation was put in a report for the Council's budget meeting on Tuesday 12th February 2019 to inform the Council and Elected Members of the outcome of the consultation. At that meeting a decision was made to increase rents by 5%. We will now write out to all our tenants now to tell them what their rent and services changes will be for 2019/20.
